Yard Waste Pickup
Archbald Borough DPW will begin picking up yard waste curbside in biodegradable bags the week of April 11th on your recycling day and continue every other week. The biodegradable lawn & leaf bags can be purchased at home & garden stores or the Borough office for $2.00 for 5 bags. No plastic bags are allowed for this service. Vegetation set out in plastic bags will not be picked up by the Borough or J.P. Mascaro.
There can be no commingling with any other materials; that is no brush or branches, no garbage, animal waste, dirt, construction material, or other recyclables. Here is the 2016 Yard Waste Pickup Schedule for printing.
